Amy was found dead with head and throat injuries in her flat on the night of 14th January 2019.

Connor Turner, one of Amy's friends, said the 51-year-old was a 'hero' in the local LGBT community.

He added: "She didn't have a selfish bone in her body. She helped me through some difficult times when I was younger.

"I knew her from when I was 15-years-old. I ended up on the streets for a bit. She found me outside a local shopping market and offered to cook me tea.

"Our friendship blossomed, she taught me how to love myself and care for myself. At the time I was coming out as bisexual.

"I was absolutely devastated when I heard about her death. I'm heartbroken."

Martin Saberi, 53, has been charged with her murder.
